[45m by regional train from home. my generation. "mostly men"] The German chancellor, Angela Merkel, has condemned two days of far-right street violence that has left several people injured, which flared up after a Syrian and an Iraqi were accused of killing a German man on Sunday.

Some far-right protesters were accused of hunting foreigners in street mobs in the eastern city of Chemnitz, while others were seen with Nazi-linked banners and giving the outlawed straight-arm salute as demonstrations went into their second day.

New Study Finds That Transgender Identity Is Not A Mental Disorder
The research, led by the National Institute of Psychiatry, interviewed 250 transgender people and found that it is not a mental disorder as once believed. Apparently, distress and impairment are the two essential characteristics of a mental disorder, and they found transgender people can experience some distress but not because they are transgender, but because of social rejection and violence.

Hate-Speech in der Schule - "Demütigung ist wie körperliche Gewalt"
"Demütigung ist wie körperliche Gewalt" /// Erst im Netz, dann auf dem Schulhof: Beleidigungen, Drohungen und auch tätliche Angriffe nehmen zu, der Ton ist rauer und aggressiver, beklagen Lehrer wie Schüler. Es gibt einen Zusammenhang zwischen Hassreden und Gewalt - er beginnt im Gehirn. [...] Auf die Auswirkungen von Ausgrenzung und Demütigung auf unser Gehirn weist der Neurobiologe Joachim Bauer von der Uniklinik Freiburg und Autor des Buches "Schmerzgrenze" hin: Das Gehirn stufe verbale Gewalt wie körperlichen Schmerz ein. Wem die Anerkennung entzogen, wer systematisch niedergemacht und entwertet werde, werde irgendwann krank. Das Sprachzentrum und Netzwerke, wo Handlungen geplant werden, hingen eng zusammen - wo viel Hass-Sprache ist, dort erhöhe sich das Risiko, dass irgendwann auch zugeschlagen wird. //&! Extremismus

“endemic culture of bullying” at a scandal-hit ambulance service intent on hitting targets, leaked reports state.

The reports describe a “culture of fear” in an NHS trust which saw employees subjected to repeated abuse and harassment.

In the documents, the then head of the trust is accused of sleeping with young female staff and running a “boys’ club” which protected staff who fiddled figures, and “trashed” the reputations of whistleblowers.

Cheryl James Deepcut death: New sexual exploitation claims - BBC News
"The inquest will now be a matter for the coroner, but we will of course continue to cooperate with and provide support to the coroner where needed." Lawyers from human rights campaign group Liberty have asked the coroner, Brian Barker QC, to allow the new witnesses to give evidence and he is expected to make a decision on Monday. Des James's solicitor Emma Norton said: "We have made an application to the coroner to investigate evidence that has come to light that appears to suggest there might have been a system of ordering recruits to have sex with other staff. "We have had a witness come forward to say Cheryl herself disclosed to him that she had been ordered to have sex with another soldier. [...] Pte James, from Llangollen, was one of four soldiers who died at the barracks between 1995 and 2002 amid claims of bullying and abuse.

Grant Shapps resigns over blackmail plot over Conservative MP's affair with an aide | Daily Mail Online
[ Tatler Tory scandal ] The Mail on Sunday wonders whether party chairman Lord Feldman - who previously shared the job with Mr Shapps - might be "doomed", after his former colleague stepped down amid claims he had failed to act on the allegations. The controversy erupted after the apparent suicide of activist Elliott Johnson, who had complained of being bullied. "Shapps' allies claimed he had been made a 'scapegoat' to protect Feldman, a close friend of the prime minister," says the Mail. The Sunday ( bit.ly/1XyQr6c ) Telegraph suggests Mr Shapps must be "getting used to it", having endured controversy over claims he tried to "mould his public image on the web", his use of a pseudonym - which he initially denied - for a second job and receipt of donations from firms linked to his portfolio when a shadow minister. //via bbc.in/1OnUuBD //&! http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/conservatives/index.html

The Trans Movement Needs a New, Science Based Strategy | Brynn Tannehill
Tuesday's defeat of HERO highlights several conclusions that the LGBT movement needs to take to heart for the next decade or so. Foremost is that we will not win transgender issues directly at the ballot box, or in the gerrymandered republican legislatures which dominate the political landscape. [...] When opponents frame legal protections for transgender people as a choice between a group strangers (who are suspected of being perverts anyway) and the safety your wives and daughters, transgender people will lose every time. So far, anti-LGBT forces have been far more successful at pushing their narrative. I don't foresee this changing anytime soon. [...] Convincing large numbers of people driven by fear and religious beliefs simply will not happen. &! bit.ly/1MgrDKK &! https://redd.it/3rxwmd &! slate.me/1Op7eck

So Wrong for So Long | Foreign Policy
[T]heir earlier support for the Iraq War and their opposition to the Iran deal stem from the basic neoconservative worldview that informs their entire approach to foreign policy. [...] To be more specific, the problem isn’t that these people just happened to be embarrassingly wrong about Iraq. After all, plenty of other people were equally misguided back then, including many people who now support the deal today. Nor is the problem the neocons’ stubborn and morally dubious refusal to admit they were wrong and take responsibility for the lives and money they squandered. No, the real problem is that the neoconservative worldview — one that still informs the thinking of many of the groups and individuals who are most vocal in opposing the Iran deal — is fundamentally flawed. [...] they think weaker states are easy to bully and never stand up to powerful adversaries. ...

Greece debt crisis: MPs back bailout reform plan - BBC News
[post-referendum ] Greece's parliament has backed a government package of economic reforms aimed at ending the country's debt crisis and securing a new bailout [ to pay off previous bailout payments that are coming-up; EFSF, IMF, ECB ] After a late-night debate, PM Alexis Tsipras won overwhelming cross-party support but saw some of his own MPs vote against him or abstain. Earlier, he admitted that some elements of the package fell short of his party's anti-austerity promises. The proposals are to be studied by eurozone finance ministers later. EU sources says Greece's creditors - the European Commission, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund - believe the plan is positive. Eurozone officials are also expected to discuss Greek requests for some of the debt to be rescheduled. Mr Tsipras is asking for €53.5bn ($59.47bn) to cover Greece's debts (re-payments and interest) until 2018. [...] given in to demands [&] measures rejected in a referendum last Sunday.

That familiarity stems from its great similarity to the bailout proposals put to Greece by the creditors - the eurozone governments, the European Central Bank and the IMF - last month. Pretty much everything wanted by the creditors is there - with the odd tweak or softening, but nothing which looks as though it ought to be noxious to them. So there is a pledge for budget surpluses rising in steps to 3.5% of GDP or national income by 2018 [< in their dreams only]. // The referendum was a last ditch effort by Syriza to get better deal. Eurogroup, Troika, IMF, ECB called it a bluff and accepted a possible Grexit and according to Juncker did prepare for it. No we are where we were when Syriza was elected and had to negotiate for a new bailout tranche, to pay off other bailout tranches re-payment coming up (IMF, EFSF, ECB) &! bbc.in/1INY5Gu MPs to deceide

Call for action on Scottish NHS 'failings' - BBC News
A body representing health professionals in Scotland has said major changes are needed to address "systemic failures" in the NHS. [...] The academy's report, Learning from Serious Failings in Care, identified key issues to be addressed, including: Poor leadership from senior staff. Poor leadership from NHS boards. Staff shortages. Poor staff morale [...] In addition, leadership and accountability were all too often sadly lacking and bullying endemic. [...] there is little evidence to suggest that we are tackling the underlying systemic failings which exist." [...] It also raised concerns about staff sickness, saying this could be an indication of deteriorating morale and should be used as "an early warning system".

Monica Lewinsky: The price of shame - YouTube
In 1998, says Monica Lewinsky, “I was Patient Zero of losing a personal reputation on a global scale almost instantaneously.” Today, the kind of online public shaming she went through has become a constant. In a brave talk, she takes a look at our “culture of humiliation,” in which online shame equals dollar signs — and demands a different way.

BBC News - Primary pupils need sex-and-relationships education, say MPs
All state primary and secondary schools in England should have to teach sex-and-relationships education (SRE), MPs have said in a report. The Commons Education Committee's inquiry was launched after Ofsted found more than a third of schools were failing to provide age-appropriate SRE. Committee chairman Graham Stuart MP said "young people have a right to information that will keep them safe". The government said it would consider the findings carefully.

No skin thick enough: The daily harassment of women in the game industry | Polygon
the internet brings out the worst in people and society - because it is frictionless. wait 10 year and we hope we died 10 years ago. // ""You don’t really recover from this kind of abuse. You just change." She’s right. Often, I’ll see people lashing out at women they perceive as too bitchy or too confrontational. They don’t understand that we are the sum of our experiences. The toxic environment causes us to change. If people attack you online, you’re going to get defensive quickly. If people sexually harass you, you’re going to grow more inward, and more protective. It’s a very human reaction, and there is no way to face this daily reality without it changing who you are."

Undox.Me
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doxing - Doxing (from dox, abbreviation of documents) or doxxing, is the Internet-based practice of researching and broadcasting personally identifiable information about an individual. The methods employed in pursuit of this information include searching publicly available databases and social media websites (like Facebook), hacking, and social engineering. It is closely related to cyber-vigilantism, hacktivism and cyber-bullying. [...] Essentially, doxing is revealing and releasing records of an individual, which were previously private, to the public. The term dox derives from the slang "dropping dox," which according to writer Mat Honan was "an old-school revenge tactic that emerged from hacker culture in

Study shows that Internet Trolls Are Narcissists, Psychopaths, and Sadists : TrueReddit
Canadian researchers conducted two internet studies with over 1,200 people. They gave personality tests to each subject along with a survey about their internet commenting behavior. They were looking for evidence that linked trolling with the Dark Tetrad of personality: narcissism, Machiavellianism, psychopathy, and sadistic personality. They found that Dark Tetrad scores were highest among people who said trolling was their favorite internet activity - http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/your-online-secrets/201409/internet-trolls-are-narcissists-psychopaths-and-sadists?tr=MostViewed

Bloggerin Kathrin Weßling über Online-Kommentare - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Kathrin Weßling: Ich weiß es nicht. Ich wohne ja im Internet und habe das Gefühl, alles schon gesehen zu haben. Eigentlich kann man sagen, es eskaliert immer dann, wenn es um Emotionen oder Politik geht. [...] Und das ist ja typisch für Trolle, dass sie Frauen wegen Äußerlichkeiten angreifen. Frage: Wie meinen Sie das? Weßling: Die Tendenz ist, dass Frauen für ihr Aussehen, ihre Sexualität beleidigt werden. Dann heißt es: Diese Frau müsste mal wieder „richtig durchgenommen“ werden. Oder: Diese Frau hat ein psychisches Problem. Männern hingegen wird oft Inkompetenz vorgeworfen, Unwissen, schlechte Recherche oder Arroganz. Ich habe bei einem Mann noch nie einen Kommentar gelesen wie: Du bist so hässlich, geh sterben. [...] Das Internet ist ein Spiegel der Menschheit. Es gibt genauso viele Frauen, die voller Neid und Frust kommentieren. Aber ich bin erstaunt, dass viele das nicht einmal anonym tun, sondern mit ihrem Klarnamen bei Facebook.

Sexualkunde-Reform in Niedersachsen: Schüler wettern gegen Abgeordnete - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Die Pläne der niedersächsischen Landesregierung zur Sexualkunde sind der CDU-Landtagsabgeordneten Karin Bertholdes-Sandrock nicht geheuer. Sollen Kinder wirklich darüber aufgeklärt werden, was zum Beispiel "transsexuell" bedeutet? Sollen Homosexuelle im Unterricht davon erzählen, wie sich Diskriminierung anfühlt? Lieber nicht, sagt Bertholdes-Sandrock, von Beruf Gymnasiallehrerin für Deutsch und Politik. Sie glaubt, das Thema überfordere die Jugendlichen. Schülervertreter in Niedersachsen finden das empörend. "Dass Frau Bertholdes-Sandrock davon spricht, dass es unverantwortlich sei, Schüler mit Homosexuellen unbeaufsichtigt zu lassen, ist wirklich traurig und höchst diskriminierend. Es schockiert mich", sagte Helge Feußahrens, Vorsitzender des Landesschülerrats Niedersachsen. [...] Vermittlung von Toleranz im Bildungsplan verankern. Homosexualität, Bisexualität, Transsexualität und Intersexualität solle an Schulen "verbindlich thematisiert werden". + ! youtu.be/MwXODqOy9Ic

After celebrity nude leaks, Apple is finally taking security a little more seriously | PandoDaily
Now it seems that Apple is at least attempting to make its efforts to fix obvious security problems with its service a little easier to understand. I’m sure that has more to do with the allegations that it was responsible for the reprehensible leak of stolen nude photographs than with a new sense of responsibility to consumers, but we’ll have to take what we can get. Maybe the lesson will stick and the company will decide to be a little more forthcoming in the future. There is no reasonable expectation of perfect security in modern society, but we can at least strive for transparency from companies like Apple when our privacy is threatened. Better to know that something can’t be kept secure than to think it’s safe and remain ignorant of any threats.

Fappening: Lawrence, Dunst, Upton - Nacktbilder von Promis - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Schon wieder sind die Frauen schuld. Dabei erklärt sich die Tatsache, dass weniger Männer-Nacktbilder durch das Netz geistern, vermutlich nicht allein dadurch, dass die Herren der Sicherheit von Apple weniger vertraut haben und bessere Schutzsysteme hatten. Sondern durch die Tatsache, dass die nackten Männer kaum jemanden interessieren. Ein nackter Mann ist ein nackter Mann. Ein Bild von einer nackten Frau, das sie angreifbar macht, ist für viele ein Grund, sich daran aufzugeilen und einen Kommentar abzugeben. Und dann ist da noch die große Frage, die über der ganzen Debatte schwebt: Warum nehmen sich Menschen überhaupt nackt auf? Für viele eine klare Sache: Eitelkeit. Entsprechende Kommentare sind von Häme durchdrungen. Sie missachten, dass Frauen nicht zwangsläufig Nacktbilder aufnehmen, um einem Mann einen Gefallen zu tun. Für viele sind sie Ausdruck, dass ihr Körper, ihre Sexualität, ihnen gehört. Sie machen Aufnahmen von sich und für sich.

Though stolen photos are being shared that have been extracted from Android and Windows Phone backups, too, I’m singling out Apple here because Apple, beyond any other tech company, prides itself on a seamless consumer experience.

Men are largely free to bare their bodies as they choose without repercussion, unless, as is the case of Dave Franco with Allison Brie and Justin Verlander with Upton, the man happens to be in a picture with a young woman, collateral damage. [...] BREAKING: beneath their clothes, celebrities are naked. What these people are doing is reminding women that, no matter who they are, they are still women. They are forever vulnerable.

Users fill out a form with their recipient’s email address, their message, and whether they are a coworker, friend, friend-of-a-friend, family member, or “someone.” The concept was partly inspired by Secret, an app that allows users to post anonymous messages to their friends and friends of friends and fits into a neat trend of apps that allow expression without attribution. Whisper, Yik Yak, and Wut are just a few others." // http://read.bi/1pmQbIW & http://bit.ly/1o49zv3 & http://bit.ly/1kgKWuZ
